Special cream cheese spread to complement your green ingredients.

Prepare kefir cheese with chives


  • 500ml milk kefir
  • 1 bunch chives
  • salt, pepper

Put the kefir in the Kefirko Cheese Maker and let it drip off overnight (about 8 hours). Put it into a bowl, mix it with the chopped chives and add salt and pepper – done.

Enjoy it on a slice of bread.

We also love to enjoy it with different kind of vegetable sticks (carrots, cucumbers etc.).

  1. You say to use 500mls of Milk Kefir.

    You don’t mention if you should have Kefir Grains, too,
    and if so how many Grains, should be with 500mls of Kefir Milk,
    in order to make this Kefir Cheese?

    Please can you clear up my baffling confusion?
    Thank you.
